Tłı̨chǫ Firefighting Services

Tłı̨chǫ Firefighting Services

Tłı̨chǫ Firefighting Services Ltd. (TFS) encompasses the delivery of our forestry/firefighting services dating back to the original founding of of Nihshi Khon Forestry in 1985 by the late Charlie Charlo.

TFS employees approximately 36 seasonal Type 1 (Canada-wide) and Type 2 (NT-based) fire firefighters, divided into six crews who work from approximately mid/late May to late September. We take great pride in supplying well-trained and professional crews, and hold ourselves to high standards of safety and training.   

Our crew members are led by experienced supervisors and undergo annual fitness tests.  

Although 2019 was luckily a slower year for wildfires, in 2018 we were proud to send a crew of Type 1 firefighters to assist with the wildfire suppression efforts in Northern British Columbia and Northern Alberta.
